I had a scan on Friday (3 days ago) and they told me to prepare for a miscarriage. My baby was 5mm with no fetal heart tones. They also said the sac looked like it had started to break down. I am 6 weeks today. The day of the scan I was 5+ 4, but the baby measured bigger. I had the scan after an episode of spotting. I have had another episode of very light spotting since but nothing else. I know this sounds awful, but I just want it all to come away and pass out of me so I can carry on with my life and TRY AGAIN... which I can't do with a passed away fetus inside me. It is not nice knowing that the pregnancy inside you will not result in a baby. I have another scan next week just to "make sure", but they were pretty sure my baby is dead. After the next scan, if I have not miscarried they will talk about medical management (I don't want a d&c unless it is 100% necessary). This will also mean messing work around, which I have done a lot of unintentionally recently. I feel so unlucky. I lost a perfectly healthy seeming baby at 9 weeks last year (I caught slapped cheek/fifths disease that caused me to miscarry) and now I am losing another pregnancy. To make things worse, it is my first angels EDD today I know I should look on the bright side, I have 2 healthy children and do not find it hard to conceive... but that does not make the loss easier. Someone said... oh well, you can try again, you will get pregnant in a few months... which I found a little insensitive. Anyway rant over.... Hi ladies.
